Shaanxi Changqing Forestry Bureau was a forest industry enterprise focusing on road building, timber felling and tree breeding. After more than 20 years' effort since 1993 when the logging ban was started, Changqing people changed their roles from felling workers to giant panda protectors. With the sustainable development concept of "Ever green mountains for sustainable use", the Bureau gradually formed a management system integrating resource protection, scientific observation, public education, ecological tourism with international cooperation, created effective protection management mode coordinating with neighboring communities, and ranked among 51 national demonstrative nature reserves approved by State Forestry Administration.

Changqing Nature Reserve Management Bureau was selected and listed into the Green Directory of the World's Best Management Reserves in November 2014 according to the evaluation criteria of four aspects such as "detailed planning, fair governance, effective management and obvious impact" as well as over 100 specific evaluation indicators.
